Robinson now has his own brand of frozen soul food entrees, called Soul In The Bowl, that features dishes like seafood gumbo and red beans and rice.
Making music AND food might seem tough but Robinson says both come from the heart, except food tastes better than a CD.
Celebrity food lines are nothing new and Robinson realizes that for every Paul Newman salad dressing, theres a Frank Sinatra spaghetti sauce.
Thats why he spent 18 months doing taste tests because, as he puts it, people may buy it once because my names on it but we want repeat customers.
Thats also why Robinson rejected product names referencing his songs, such as My Grits instead of My Girl.
Robinsons soul food will be available all over America and hell use profits to hold seminars for urban teens to teach them that they dont have to be entertainers or sports stars to make it.
